"meet john f. kennedy." the cult that john f. kennedy was alive and well throughout my childhood and i became interested as a student of my region, which i always cared about my -- where i grew up, but also, the story was just so compelling. i was fascinated as a kid and stayed interested throughout. i now remember the 40th anniversary of the cuban missile crisis quite well. i know we're 10 years past that. i think it's a great story for americans to re-learn and i hope younger americans. i mean, one thing this book tries to do is to get past what has been for a long time our sense of the great tragedy of john f. kennedy, which is, of course, the fact that he was cut down before the end of his presidency was supposed to happen, and i think this book restores a sense of how much was accomplished and how rich his presidency was and how he, like any other president, had good days and bad days and had a lot to feel proud of in the fall of 1963. >> so when your mother was carrying you, what did she do for a living? >> she was a housewife, i believe. she eventually became a scholar of china.

campaign of john f. kennedy, the 35th president of the united states -- he was a catholic. in 1960, there was a certain amount of anti-catholic sentiment in the country, so a catholic running for president was a big deal. so much so that a usually insignificant democratic primary in the rural state of west virginia became a do-or-die election for the young politician. some hoped he would fail and clear the way for other candidates, but when kennedy arrived in west virginia in late april 1960, he was riding high. he had just defeated one opponent, hubert humphrey, in the wisconsin primary, and he felt his campaign was picking up speed. but he was about to confront a voting population that was 98% protestant. jack kennedy's role as the underdog in west virginia is a new one for the frontrunner for the democratic nomination. his strength may hinge on a much-publicized if little understood factor -- how his roman catholic religion will sit at the polls with west virginia's heavily protestant voters. man: he won wisconsin but barely, which meant humphrey would continue to west virginia. but th
